Timothy Mowry Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education
Timothy John Mowry was born on 4 January 1957 under the Capricorn zodiac sign, in Miami, Florida USA. Of English and Irish ancestry, he hasn’t talked about his parents and any siblings.
Timothy grew up in Miami playing various sports, including football, and wasn’t very much focused on academics, but still earned a scholarship for university. While at the university, he continued to play football, and the discipline he learned from coaches inspired him to seek further motivation. As a result, Tia’s father inquired about joining the army, and after a few physical and mental tests, Timothy was officially a part of the US Army.
During his Army service, Timothy reached the rank of First Sergeant, commanding his own unit, in the battalion – the first sergeant is also known as the father of the unit, responsible for their prosperity and development. After years of service, Timothy and the family settled in California, and he began working as a custody officer/jailer with the City of Glendale Police Department.
